For those of you who don’t remember “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse”, one of the running gags involved a “secret word”. Basically, if anyone said the “secret word” everyone was supposed to scream. I would suggest playing that with CES 2018 and “digital assistant“, but we’d all lose our voices and our hearing within an hour.


Yevo Releases the World’s First Headphones Made from Illegal Firearms

If you read our review last year about the YEVO 1 headphones, then you know how phenomenal they are both in looks and in the listening experience, so it’s no surprise that Stockholm-based YEVO Labs joined forces with Humanium Metal by IM to introduce Humanium Metal – a commodity for peace into the YEVO 1 Earphones.

I’ve found that the best way to make sure I don’t forget anything before I leave home is to have a central spot where I keep all the things I might need.

Elgato Makes Any Home Smarter In the Simplest Ways

Elgato was one of the first companies to fully embrace Apple’s HomeKit, even with Apple’s strict rules and regulations set in place.

So I fully expect the Elgato Eve Button…

Lenovo’s Smart Display Is What the Echo Show Should Have Been!

Voice assistants on our phones, from Google to Alexa to Siri, have gone from novelties to key parts of our daily workflow. Up until now, with the exception of the Amazon Echo Show, they’ve been stuck solely on phones, tablets, and speakers. Lenovo is smashing everyone’s perception of a digital assistant with the Smart Display, which will quickly become the…



Connectivity Is Meeting Simplicity in Elder Care

Baby-boomers are often referred to as the “Sandwich generation”, stuck between taking care of older parents and family members as well as caring for their own children.
